Boys and Girls Club gets new playground equipment

Local

A huge surprise Thursday for kids at the Boys and Girls Club of Texarkana, Texas!  It was waiting when they stepped off the school bus.

The kids got new playground equipment.  The set, along with picnic tables were donated by Lowe’s.  Before Thursday,the only thing in the backyard was a basketball court.

Major David Feeser of the Salvation Army of Texarkana said, “Most kids they just go out there and just sit, they do the same thing as they’re doing inside, so the playground kindof lures them to kindof get up and move around.”   Lowe’s manager Curtis Shamsie said, “When you start helping the youth out like that, there’s nothing better, I don’t think there’s anything better that we do any time of the year.”

It took a Lowe’s crew about four hours to put the set together.  They all donated their time.
